I would like to have a bunch of remote computers look for windows updates, and install them. Yes, we have active directory, with group policies, but No, I am not in the group that works with group policy, so please no suggestions to use group policy.
What is happening, is these are newly imaged computers, and I noticed when I remotely connected to some of them that they have updates. However, there are several computers, and it's a little inefficient to remote to each one, click on start and type in update. Also, I think there is a schedule for the updates to be automatically installed, but I need to deploy these quickly, and the schedule seems a bit leisurely, so I don't think the updates will be applied before I need to deploy the computers.
From googling my problem, I found this command
wuauclt /r /detectnow /updatenow
I run this at an elevated command prompt, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
Any suggestions on how this could be accomplished?
